My last report on this bank was in March 2009 when this 7-month CD had a yield of 3.00% APY. This is a good example of how much rates have gone down this year.
The bank continues to offer a high yield savings account with a top yield of 2.50% APY (was 3.00% last March) on balances up to $10,000 (1.25% for above). This also has the same checking account requirement as the special CD.
At the bottom of the rate table it states that they do not accept deposits outside of their market area. The bank is located in Atlanta, Georgia.
The bank's ratings for safety and soundness are a little weak: 2 stars (problematic) at BauerFinancial (based on 9/30/09 data) and 1 star (lowest) at Bankrate.com (based on 6/30/09 data). It has been a FDIC member since 2006 (FDIC Certificate # 58238).
Thanks to the reader Atlanta Wolf who mentioned these new rates in the comments.
